When you think of your favorite artists, do you think about where they got their start? Independent venues have always been a stepping stone for the largest names in music. Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Guns N’ Roses, and Neil Young are just some of the names you might recognize who debuted on Troubadour‘s stage from Los Angeles, California.
“We have joined the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), a group of more than 1,200 independent music venues and promoters in all 50 states, to collectively urge Congress to help protect our industry by providing the financial support that is necessary for us to survive the shutdown and reopen once again.
When this crisis began, independent music venues were the first to close, and we will be the last to open. While completely shuttered we have no revenue, our employees and artists are without jobs, and normal bills keep coming, regardless.” – representatives of Troubadour said.
Please join us and support their cause by calling and writing your Senators and Representatives today. It will only take 60 seconds to make your voice heard.
Together with you, they have played a role in bringing West Hollywood and Los Angeles to life, as well as furthering the careers of countless artists over 63 years in business. Now independent venues like theirs are at risk, and we need you to tell your legislators how important the Troubadour is to you and our community.
Yell it, scream it, clap your hands, and pound your feet like you’re calling the band back for an encore! Please help us ensure they will survive by using your voice now (and tell a friend or 100 friends!). #SaveOurStages
